SUMMER SEMESTER: Tuesday, June 13 - Thursday July 29
No classes July 3-7
Hello Everybody... it's time to make Music Together®!
This summer we will be singng the Summer Songs Collection 3 - a collection of your favorite songs and rhythm chants, and instrumental play-alongs chosen from the nine Music Together song collections. We will be "Shaking Those Simons Down" with egg shakers and maracas, "Marching and Drumming" with hand and floor drums (maybe even drumming on our head, belly and knees, too)! We will count the "Great Big Stars," gallop around the room to "See the Pony," and pick some "Apples and Cherries."
Each song will be accompanied by a small or large motor movement or a percussion instrument. We will sing with high and low voices, tap, clap, jump and stomp to learn rhythm, and explore and make music with drums, bells, sticks, triangles, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers and more. Although the children will believe that Music Together is only play, they will be learning Basic Music Competence: to sing in tune and to find and keep and accurate rhythm.
As always, we will begin each class with the "Hello" and end with the "Goodbye" song. The children will learn that these songs signal the beginning and ending of class. We believe that it's important to greet and acknowledge the children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and caregivers who will participate in class, and the children just love to hear their name sung in class. The class will continue for 45-minutes of live music making! Let's make Music Together!
